Meerkats have been creating their own ultimate predator using their knowledge of predators we were learning about last half term. Here are some predators beautifully designed and created with oil pastels.
Autumn Term in Meerkats
Written by Meerkats Class
Predators is our topic this term.
We have had such a lot to learn.
Haikus, stories, grammar and spelling.
Non-chronological reports are compelling.
Maths in Meerkats has been excellent fun.
With thousands, hundreds, tens and ones.
Addition and subtraction, different methods to choose.
Counters, Base 10, column method,
To name just a few.
We have enjoyed sketching and painting predators and feathers.
Everyday playing with our friends in all weather.
Carnival of the Animals is music that inspires us to move and dance.
Lions, elephants and kangaroos that prance.
Marvellous Meerkats enjoy working together.
This half-term has been such fun.
Our learning journey has just begun.
Lemurs Thrilling Thursday
The children have had great fun writing this poem so they could share all they have been learning with you from Autumn term 1.

Useful Year 3 Information
Our school day
Please walk your child to the exterior door of either Meerkats or Lemurs classroom. There is no need to line up on the playground as they will be greeted by their allocated adults and encouraged to enter the school and immediately wash their hands. Please be aware that it is very difficult for the teacher to have a conversation with a parent at this time as we are trying to observe social distancing whilst helping the children with their coats and bags, get their hands washed and settle children into their seats in the classroom.
Please respect social distancing and adhere to these at all times whilst waiting with or for your child.
To help support social distancing and to be as quick and calm as possible at the end of the day, we have trialled a teacher standing at an open classroom window whilst the children stay seated. Once the teacher has engaged with the adult collecting a child we are then able to ask the child to come out to you. We will continue with this going forwards.
‘Take a moment to step outside and stand quietly and still. Turn off all your technology and try to forget the modern world. Imagine this place 5000 years ago. What would you have seen? Head back to prehistoric times to gather berries and hunt down dinner. Unearth ancient objects and visit astonishing mystical monuments that reveal the secrets of an ancient time. Learn how the people of Britain developed over thousands of years, from the Stone Age to the Roman invasion.
